Nelson Rigg CL-1040-TP Jumbo Tail Bag 4.9 5 9 9
Very nice quality product. Great value! After a few weekend trips without a tail bag, my significant other was growing tired of the backpack under a cargo net on the pillion. With an upcoming week long trip through a few New England states, we looked for something that could carry her for a week. After some research, I narrowed our options down and could not pass up the price for this Nelson Rigg piece. Having owned the mini tank bag from Nelson Rigg, I was familiar with the products but the the quality of the product is top notch. The ability to expand the bag as well as the ability to expand even the rain cover was key. My expectations for most rain covers is a somewhat universal elasticized cover. This cover was designed to fit the bag like a glove even allowing the bottom to expand via zipper. When the bag is empty, one nice piece is that it holds it's shape well. Not quite as well when expanded but why expand the bag if it's empty? This is a nice feature as trips with an empty floppy bag can become annoying. I would recommend this bag if you are looking for a weekend/week long trip. It could possibly be used as a commuter bag as well but honestly may be a bit large for that unless you have a significant amount of cargo daily. August 17, 2015
Great bag! So far so good on this bag. Easy to mount, looks great, and it feels/looks like a high quality product. Can't wait to take it out for a weekend ride. May 25, 2015
Great design for adapting to any bike. This product is a replacement of my old NelsonRigg tail bag, which had a remarkable durability. The new one shows important improvements in terms of design, features, and weight reduction. I hope it lasts as long as the old one. May 4, 2015
GREAT Bag I really like this tail bag. Its big enough to carry a weekends worth of gear or additional gear for a longer trip with the side bags I have. And it fits a full face helmet when expanded. October 20, 2014
6500 highway miles with no issues or wear Chicago to Seattle and Seattle to Phoenix were the bulk of the miles. Works perfect on the rear seat pad of my FJR. Dry with the cover in the rain. Hard rain for 2 days and speed and not a drop. Excellent product and easy to use. With this bag and my paniers I could travel indefinitely with everything I need. I actually have room for more if I want it. Also works as a backrest for me on the FJR. September 2, 2014
good tailbag for the money! tail bag is a nice addition to the saddlebags I purchased earlier.....when I unzip the expansion zipper I can fit my helmet inside....and there are ALOT of pockets and storage space, hopefully I will be able to go on some trips and pack them to see actual space for storage.....should be good for what trips I will be taking April 14, 2014
Nice size....... bought this bag for longer trips on my FJR. Not a huge fan of hard top cases so I tried this one. Size is deceiving, when expanded it holds a ton of stuff. Connection to the bike is simple, quick and easy with the mounting straps. Rain cover works well, rode in the rain for 3 hours and my computer and clothes were dry as a bone. Quality and finish is top notch, for the money it's well worth it! Highly recommended. March 17, 2014
Great bag, perfect for my need This bag fit my needs perfectly. Very well constructed and proved itself on a two week trip through all types of weather! October 14, 2013

The attachments are better on this updated model than the original ones. Easy on and off with soft ties
to the bike and clips to the rings on the bag.

Zachary S: This bag can fit so much gear. I can fit my helmet plus gear, or my riding jacket (with armor) in it plus gear. It expands to fit even more and the side pockets expand also. Plenty of room for a trip. It comes with a waterproof outer shell that works great. I use this and a Nelson Rigg tank bag and can turn my naked FZ6 into a virtual touring machine. Its easy to get on and off, but built to stay on (you would have to renegotiate the straps each time you take it on/off). The rear strap has nothing to hook to on my bike since it has the fender eliminator and an exhaust that shoots under the seat. I just ran one strap through the rear bars and tightened it down. Has been in place with no prob for a few months. Aug 27, 2015

A shopper asked: Is there quick connect buckles on this bag so I can get on and off w/o removing my seat? May 23, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Scott P: I'm not sure I understand the question... but there is no quick and easy way to remove the bag really. It straps to some point on the frame of the bike, but I found the straps that come with it difficult to use (and not easy to quickly remove). I replaced them with some bungee cords and using that, I can install or remove the bag in about 10 seconds. Other than the straps, I really love the bag! It holds a ton, has the flaps on the sides to protect the paint on the bike from scratches from the straps, and has held up well so far. May 23, 2014

A shopper asked: How will this bag fit on a BMW 1200RT? Better on the bag seat or rack? Any advice from anyone who is using this on an RT is appreciated? Mike Oct 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Wilbur N: I have an RT and I mount it on the passenger seat close enough to the rear of the driver's seat that it can be used as a makeshift back rest. I loop the rear strap under the luggage rack and connect to each side of the rear of the bag, The front two straps loop around the frame just to the rear of the passenger foot pegs. It's quick to attach and detach. I have to take the hard bags off to attach the straps. Great bag and it holds a lot of stuff when expanded. You could attach in
the same manner on the luggage rack also. Bill

A shopper asked: is there anyway I can fit this on top of my tour pack safely? Aug 28, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris T: Hard to say without seeing your set up. I had to build a mounting platform out of an old lunch tray to get it to fit my bike properly, but once it was on it performed beautifully. Just got back from a 4,000 mile ride and it went flawlessly. My view is that it's always possible, you just have to find a way to do it right/safely. One word of caution though, this is a very large bag, which I love about it, but stacked on top of a hard shell tour pack it's going to be sticking up like a totem pole on the back of your bike...good luck.

Eric F: I found a simple way of just using basic Velcro straps (Home Depot/Lowes has multiple types) on the rings and secured that way. There are so many places to secure the bag on this bag. Hope that helps! Nov 4, 2013
